Pupil Premium & Catch Up Premium

Airedale Academy receives additional funding for pupils who are entitled to free school meals, called the pupil premium. A report on the amount of pupil premium received, how it has been spent, and the impact of the spending can be viewed by clicking on the Impact Report button to the right. Our strategy for how the Academy plans to spend the current year’s allocation can be downloaded from the links on the right. The next interim review of our Pupil Premium Strategy is due to take place during the summer term of 2016/17 with the final review in September 2017, following the release of the GCSE results.

A report can also be downloaded regarding the Catch-Up Premium, which is paid to the Academy for those students who join us from primary school with below expected levels of attainment in English and Maths.
